Old-school Technology: Business Cards

It may seem like paper goods are so 20th century. But here's a link to some compelling reasons to invest in having business cards made up, and suggestions about what to put on them.

I know from my own experience that business cards are useful. When I'm online, I have difficulty knowing where to "stash" information I want to keep track of. Yes, I know there's an app for that... but then I end up with an app full of unrelated clips from here and there, and stuff gets buried pretty quickly.

A business card, on the other hand, goes right into the middle drawer of my desk, right side. But before I stash it there, I enter the info on my name-and-address spreadsheet... As this article points out, the tangible object gets handled at least once in the transition to my huge pile of "stuff I don't want to forget."

And yes, I know there are apps for scanning business cards... but it still gets handled while being scanned!


  1. Metal business cards is much more better tool to use for marketing and stay in touch with potential customers.

  2. Nice post with great details. I know that card is must and and very helpful that is why i have ordered for the plastic business cards for my new business.
